Mahindra South Africa has launched a completely redesigned Scorpio S10 SUV. The newcomer features an all-new platform, a thoroughly modern look with dual projector headlights and LED daytime running lights, and an extensive list of advanced technologies. The new Scorpio S10 SUV is powered by Mahindra’s highly regarded mHawk 2,2-litre turbodiesel engine, linked to a new, slick-shifting five-speed manual gearbox.
The interior execution continues the new Scorpio’s contemporary theme with a dual-shaded dashboard and smart, blue-grey upholstery. The instrument cluster features a three-dimensional display, and includes a comprehensive information readout.
“Following on the launch of the new-generation XUV500 sport utility vehicle last year, we’re proud to introduce the all-new, thoroughly re-engineered, equally advanced Scorpio S10 SUV to the SA market,” says Sanjoy Gupta, chief executive officer of Mahindra SA.
“The Scorpio has always represented an appealing mix of capability and value, but this latest model raises the bar significantly in every respect. Everything, from the contemporary appearance to the sophisticated interior and the under-the-skin engineering, has been re-engineered to an entirely higher standard,”
Gupta adds that value remains a core element of the Scorpio S10 SUV, despite the substantially improved package.
“With pricing starting below R285 000 for the 4×2 model and just under R300 000 for the 4×4 derivative, the Scorpio continues to represent exceptional value for money – a key aspect against a gloomy economic backdrop. We are convinced that the Scorpio S10 SUV will further entrench Mahindra’s growing status as significant player in the SA automotive sector.”
